Dr. Ryan Phasouk answered:

Appendectomy if the surgeon discovers that an appendix is burst, should the procedure be done laparoscopically or traditionally?

In general

Surgeon
A perforation of the appendix in an acute ill patient will call for an urgent laparotomy. In some cases, a perforation of the appendix can result in self-containment and non-operative management is the treatment if choice. All the best!

When I have cholesytectomy, will.I.have open surgery since I bleed a lot and had lots of infection from appendectomy? Had a drainage when appendix rem

Possibly

Appendectomy
Just because you had some complications from your appendix surgery doesn't mean you will have an open cholecystectomy for sure. The determination for open gallbladder surgery is based upon the ability of the surgeon to safely visualize and remove the gallbladder.

I had an appendectomy two days ago on an appendix that was not bursted. I have sharp pains in my stomach and back with swelling What could it be?

Pain after surgery

Abdomen
It is usually normal to have pain after a surgical procedure but if the pain is severe and associated with other type of abdominal issues you should be checked immediately in order to rule out post surgical infections or complications.

I did an appendectomy and I have more diarrhea than other people like my parents(same diet), friends and brothers. The lack of appendix can causethis?

The removal of your appendix is not responsible for your diarrhea. You may have a food allergy or you may have inflammatory bowel disease. See a gastroenterologist

Appendicitis is something that usually comes, stays, and becomes a big problem. It does not usually come and go. It's also usually does not cause significant stool changes except maybe diarrhea at the time it is inflamed. It sounds like it would be very beneficial to see a G.I. specialist as there is a few problems things it could be. IBS, Crohn's and ulcerative colitis are all possible.
